Giannis out lifts The Rock.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the best big men in the NBA. Due to his strength and skill, the Milwaukee Bucks are currently sitting at #1 in the Eastern Conference. When Giannis isn't dominating on the court, he's just like the rest of us. The NBA star enjoys scrolling down his Instagram feed, and he ran into a post of Dwayne Johson doing hip/glute thrusts. The wrestler turned movie star lifted 460lbs, and humbly bragged about it on social media. "Personal best 460lbs hip/glute thrusts to warm up before hitting legs," wrote Johnson. "And according to NASA, I’m basically bionic from the waist down. Which always leads to inappropriate jokes whilst I drink my tequila."
Giannis took to his Instagram to challenge Johnson to a lifting competition. "570lbs/260kgs... I think we topped your 460lbs personal best but we’ll give you a chance to match it here in Milwaukee @therock," taunted the Buck star. Johnson wasn't even mad about the competitive insult, and responded, "My boys here are stroooong!! Good to see you’re bringing my Iron Paradise to the @NBA. It’s why you’re #1 in the East. @Giannis_An34 might be bionic." Their online banter led reporters to question Giannis before his game on Friday. Journalists asked the Greek Freak if he could beat Johnson in the wrestling ring. “I’d kill him,” gloated Giannis.
